Tina Dirmann

With more than a decade of reporting experience behind her, Tina Dirmann has covered some of the nation’s biggest news stories, interviewing notorious criminals and profiling A-list celebrities. She is a graduate of UCLA and worked for The San Bernardino County Sun and Riverside County’s The Press Enterprise newspaper before joining The Los Angeles Times, where she covered crime, courts, and county politics, and worked as a general assignment reporter on the state desk. Before leaving the Times, Dirmann earned a spot among a small team of reporters named as finalists for The Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the 2000 Alaska Airllines crash, which killed 88 people. In recent years, Dirmann switched from crime news to entertainment reporting, working as a staff reporter for Us Weekly magazine before becoming Deputy Bureau Chief for Star magazine. Vanished at Sea is her second true crime book. Her first, Such Good Boys, is a chilling account of how two sons conspired to viciously murder their mother. Dirmann is currently a contributing entertainment reporter/on-air personality for E! Entertainment and a freelance writer living near the sand and seas in Santa Monica, California.
